FAFSA needs to be completed ASAP

Uncategorized

News Flash! FAFSA needs to be completed ASAP. Previously, some in-state schools didn’t require the form to be completed to receive the Hope scholarship but this year, students in the State of Georgia DO need to complete the FAFSA!

Another great reason to complete FAFSA? Many merit scholarships require this form and in some cases, the CSS Profile, to be able to receive scholarships.

Beating the Admissions Odds

Colleges and universities around the nation reported record applications, and record-low acceptance rates, again this year. Many experts believe this new paradigm reflects the ease of using the Common Application.
Harvard’s acceptance rate for the Class of 2015 was 6.17 percent, setting a new record low.
While there’s no getting around the surge in college applications, there are ways for savvy students to improve their admissions odds.

1) Be a Legacy
2) Be a Recruited Athlete
